The next Big Geek Day Out is being held on Saturday 18th July 2009 from 10:30am at Bletchley Park, the home of high-level British Intelligence during World War II.
Tickets cost £10.00 on the door, or £8.50 online (and let you go back as often as you want for a year).
Bletchley Park is surprisingly easily accessible by rail from London, Bedford and Birmingham, so there should be no excuses for anyone not being able to get there.
What is a Big Geek Day Out?
Big Geek Days Out are "unEvents" - one person organises a time and place for people to meet and that's it. Everything else is done by the people coming to the event.
The idea is that there are plenty of places that we'd like to go to, but for whatever reason never get round to visiting. By someone saying "we're going there on this date" it becomes much more likely that you'll actually get off your bum and visit.
So, that's what happens. The organiser says where and when to meet, and you (as someone who's attending) deal with getting there and buying any tickets needed to get into the place we're visiting. When we went to Alton Towers last year, people organised car shares to get themselves there and sourced buy-one-get-one-free tickets for each other.
Of course, whilst the event isn't classically organised it's still good to know who's going to be coming. If you are going to come along, please add yourself
